I am off work until Monday and it felt good to sleep in this morning all the way til 6:30 am at about the time that the doggies came and jumped in bed with us…needing to potty and wanting to eat!
I walked the dogs and the weather was so nice and cool that as soon as I got the boys home, I suited up and went on my 3 mile run today. Today was day 19 of “Marathon Training.” My lower back is still in pain and not much better but as long as I kept my form good, I ran ok.
I can tell that my stamina is improving. I wasn’t even intimidated by the long incline at “Garth” like I usually am. I powered up that sucker without even thinking about it. I ran very slow for the first mile due to my back but my speed got better.
I am supposed to have a rest day tomorrow but we’ll see. Only 5 miles on Saturday.
I did some laundry and waited on 8 tons of top soil to be delivered. It’s here waiting for us to do something with it this weekend. I hope it doesn’t rain.
I mowed the yard…and it really needed it. All the rain has been good for our lawn this year.
I took Peyton and Eli to Twin Lake Dogs Park so they could play with other dogs and swim. They love that so much. I get a pleasure out of watching them. They were both good boys.
I came home, showered, fed the dogs and sit outside with a big glass of wine, gorgonzola cheese and crusty bread. Kevin worked late tonight so that was my dinner. Not a very nutritional dinner but it did balance out my carbs, protein, fat in a way that was good. 🙂
I’m dog tired and about ready for bed and it’s just after 9 pm. That means it has been a good day for me.
